Did you know that liver transplantation is the second most common form of organ transplantation performed in the United States*? We know preparing for your liver transplant can be an overwhelming process with many difficult decisions to be made along the way.

 

Join us in our office on Thursday, April 26th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. for a discussion on Preparing for your Transplant. The discussion will be led by Marti Hoar, RN, MSN, CCTC; she will be joined by a liver transplant recipient, Dr. Susan Ventura, PT, MEd, PhD, who will share her own perspective on preparing for transplant.
